Playing with Corel X

I really like trying new media to create illustrations. This illustration was done with Corel X. You can go to and download the free trial version of the software. I find it very easy to work with and it gives me lots of tools to try. There are also tutorials that will help you get started. They are excellent. I really enjoy working with patterns and textures. Corel gives you so many to choose from. There are paper textures, pens, ink, crayons, pastels, charcoal and even gouche media to work with. And no, Corel is not paying me to say so. Just wanted to share and put it out there for other artist and illustrators. I use Corel X for lots of work that I do. It's a great tool to have. Have a great creative day!
